I think I may have said like one thing on the old thread, so I will re-introduce myself here.
I am the mama of two great kiddos, Keagan, who is 3 and Eden who is 14 months. Keagan's a bright, active kiddo with some special needs, so he's a handful, but a joy.
We lean towards unschooling. But my problem lately is that he just LOVES structured activities and I never thought I'd be coming up with so many at this age, Days where I have three or four little things planned go so much better than the days I don't. DS really wants to be challenged intellectually (not just mama pride, something his OT was always telling me) and if I don't come up with something for him, he tends to cause problems. At his baby sister's expense. Sooo I have been trying to come up with more for him. We do a lot of playgroups, trips to the library, zoo, park etc but it's the days we're home that I need more.
I've recently started to do some "science experiments" with him and he really likes that. Anyone have any they've done with their preschooler? We've had fun freezing things, mixing oil and water, and growing those toys that you put in water and they get bigger.... don't know what those are called.... as well as some gardening.
We read a million books. He's reading some on his own, knows all the letters, sounds etc, a few site words and is working on the sounding it out thing. He loves letters and asks me to do that more, so I need more ideas there. (This has been his obsession all his own since he was about 20 months old and I showed him that his name started with a "K".... he just keeps asking for more. I've been almost reluctant because he's so young but I can't hold him back any more lol)
Anyway, any ideas on some fun activities to keep him happy would be appreciated greatly.
